As many as 7 new Nokia phones were recently certified by the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) of Russia. A variant of one of those devices with model number Nokia TA-1178 has obtained FCC certification in the US.
Nokia TA-1178 that has passed FCC today is the single-SIM variant of the phone and the FCC documents reveal another model number associated with the same phone, namely Nokia TA-1196, which could possibly be the dual-SIM variant of the same phone. This device, TA-1196 was the one that appeared in the Russian certification website last week, along with 6 other models.
The only noteworthy information available in the FCC documents is the prototype of the phone, which reveals the dimensions of the phone. The phone measures 75 mm in width and 160 mm in height. The diagonal measurement is 160 mm, which roughly translates to 6.7 inches of screen size. The display could be around 6.2 inches or thereabouts, depending on the bezels on the phone.
Sometimes we get information about the battery of the phone from the FCC listing but it’s not the case this time. The documents don’t have any information about the memory variants or chipset or the different regions the phone will be released in. We have to wait for more information to unfold in the coming days to find out more about this phone. All we know is that the phone supports NFC connectivity as there is an NFC antenna present and the phone’s other variant is the one with model number TA-1196.
Upcoming Nokia Phones
The model numbers spotted in EEC were TA-1175, TA-1186, TA-1192, TA-1196, TA-1198, TA-1203 and TA-1206. Nokia is expected to release about 3 new phones in the month of August and they are likely to be Nokia 5.2, Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2.
